Biodynamic -- Family run – limited production – 10 hectares – sustainable methods
Situated in the very south of the region, Domaine Cornin is a 10 hectare, family run estate based in the village of Chaintre.
The entire Domaine is farmed following Biodynamic principles, with the Cornin family, notably head winemaker Yannick, making very conscious attempts throughout their production process to leave as small a carbon footprint as possible.
For more than a decade now, their land has also been cultivated without the use of chemical herbicides, in an effort to produce healthy, and importantly, natural grapes, which in turn produce stunning wines – fine examples of the benefits of sustainable, environmentally conscious farming.
The area of Pouilly is situated at the southern tip of Burgundy where the warm climate ensures high levels of ripeness and complexity. From old vines concentrated golden apple lends weight to a complex, natural palate of raw honey and lemon marmalade.
